bit shit eh?
"dogs have four legs".
prefer world was a mess, though.
Well, I haven't heard the new song, but that one was good. Does it mention smoking/chinese takeaways/chain pubs?
more dancing on the roofs at parties and <quote>not giving a shit</quote>
a world was a mess was a bit un-memorable...
It's obviously nothing pant-wettingly original or groundbreaking (the total opposite in fact), but it has a nice melody and the guitars kick in or drop out at the right moments.
What a surprise...
in rough trade sold me the new album yesterday ahead of it's proper release.
not listened to it yet..
i like it.
to "22 grand job" followed by their new album.
consensus = 22gj amazing
new album = poop, minus suspicious eyez.
but on first listen it's more consistent than the first one. maybe not so many standout tracks though...
sounds like a song that i should know, but cant think which one
There are plenty of bands I don't like, but can completely understand their acclaim and appeal, such as Arctic Monkeys.
But The Rakes just sound so bland and average...
alan's vocals just seem uninterested. everything else just doesn't seem to have any energy.
but for some reason it's growing on me...
Still a decent enough indie pop album though. Thinking about it, I really do quite like it actually.
